Authorities are looking for help in finding an at risk missing person.

Christian Richardson, 18, was last seen Friday around 8 p.m. at his home near Elvora Way and Abrigo Way. According to a family member, Richardson ran away from home because he was told he could not visit his friends in Dixon.

Richardson, diagnosed as bipolar, is considered at risk and does not have his medication. Richardson is described as an African-American male standing about 5’10” and weighing around 185 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes.

Officers conducted a grid search and used an emergency notification system, but all efforts to find Richardson have so far been fruitless.

UPDATE: Sunday, Elk Grove Police announced that Richardson had been found safe and reunited with his family.

Ruben Dominguez and Cecilio Padilla filed this report.
